                                                                                                                                              … MAKE A PORN FILM?
U   nder the Candy Stars banner, their objective is to create porn for lesbians
    by lesbians, in a secure, sleaze-free and misogyny-free environment.
Before the crew got their cameras rolling, they carried out a nationwide
survey to find out what turns us on.

Their first offering is the aptly named Coming Together, introducing Ruby
Fox who arrives in the city, wide-eyed and innocent, and wanders into the
hedonistic and exciting world of lesbian London.

                                                                                  Documentary directors, The Smithee

                                                                                  Why not? It’s the film we’ve been waiting to watch
                                                                                  – a film with realistic lesbian sex in it – women
                                                                                  making out like lesbians, not like porn stars.
                                                                                  We were also adamant that there should be no
                                                                                  sex with vegetables. We’re vegetarians – we eat
                                                                                  vegetables – we don’t date them!

                                                                                  How did you choose the actors?
                                                                                  We had loads of applications but managed to
                                                                                  whittle them down to a shortlist. The calibre of the
                                                                                  actors was so high we couldn’t say no to any on
                                                                                  the shortlist – so we created parts for them all.
                                                                                  We were particularly delighted by how the women

                                                                                  and lesbian desire, without demeaning or belittling
                                                                                  the women involved.

                                                                                  None of the cast had really acted before and we

treated you, and be reduced to tears by your mates’ heart-wrenching
accounts of the time you went to the pub and drank too much and threw up

the fact that her dead ex-girlfriend’s corpse has just embraced her, and the

                                                           A    couple of weeks ago, I did exactly that when I was invited to attend the launch party
                                                                for Passion, billed by the organisers as “an exciting new show for adventurous
                                                           adults to explore, share and indulge their passions for everything erotic”.

                                                           Well, life’s not always a bed of roses and sometimes you just have to get on with it,
                                                           so I donned my gladrags, slapped on the lippy and rode the Oyster to Chancery Lane
                                                           underground. Here, I bumped into fellow invitee Trixie Wild, author of some intensely
                                                           cathartic erotica and considered, in certain circles, to be something of a rare beauty.
                                                           Good, I had found myself a playmate for the afternoon.

                                                           Not that I needed one. From beginning to end (and, in keeping with the time-honoured
                                                           g3 tradition, I was one of the first to arrive and the last to leave) it was quite clear that
                                                           the organisers had pulled out all the stops to ensure that my fellow guests and I would
                                                           find the afternoon not just enjoyable and informative, but also mildly arousing.

                                                           Bar Volupté, a chi-chi neo-burlesque bar in the City, was an inspired choice for the
                                                           festivities, as were the costumes selected for the waitresses – the perfect backdrop for
                                                           finding out more about the main event. I thought I’d better do some work so, pausing
                                                           only to grab a cocktail, I decided to find out more.

                                                           Passion hits Earl’s Court on the 24 and 25 May and promises “to challenge the ideas of

                                                           speak, but I doubt it. I spoke to several members
                                                           of the Passion team before I got drunk and they
                                                           really do have, yes, a passion for what they’ve
                                                           conceived. Interestingly, and remembering
                                                           that this is a pan-sexual rather than a gay

                                                           extremely good news for those of us who a)
                                                           believe that women are better than men at
                                                           everything that matters or b) think that the

                                                           by straight men. It’s not that straight men don’t

     Dear Sindy,
     I have always been uptight about sex and I can’t orgasm
     unless I am alone... not because I’m shy, but because of the              WITH
     way I feel about my bottom, my bodily functions and the
     possibility of breaking wind in the middle of sex. My mother           SINDY SIN
     was very strict and all toilet duties were considered dirty in our
     house. Farting was never allowed publicly. It seems silly, but I
     can’t even discuss this with my girlfriend, I just feel covered in
     shame. How can I learn to relax?
